September challenge Over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit *

Oh my word Christmas is almost upon us... scary!  Well it is time for another challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit and for this month I have put together a fairy in a jar and I really loved making this.

The jar is 6 inches tall, 4 inches wide and the neck is 2 inches wide.  It was a hell of a job getting the moss to stay at the bottom of jar and would only settle once I placed my fairy inside. She was a picture I managed to find on the net, cut her out and stuck her to some twigs from my garden to replicate a tree.  I placed some tiny rosebuds on the branches and manipulated the fairy and tree into the jar.  Fiddly but really worth it.  I hot glued the teigs to the neck to give further strength.  I stuck a small piece of card over the neck and covered with lace.  For the backing I used a really pretty floral/butterfly napkins and decoupaged to the jar.  To finish it off i used the same lace down the sides and made a bow for the top. Please excuse the terrible photos - difficult to get right angles without glare lol
